Hi All, Thank you in advance for your help!
My fiancé and I are getting married in 2 weeks. Yikes! We are flying into Bangkok on Tuesday 10/29 and in Thailand until 11/10 for our honeymoon. We are going straight to Chiang Mai until 11/1 and then we are going to Phuket. We have Chiang Mai figured out but are so lost on the rest of the trip and need help.
Our plan is to stay in Phuket a bit, go to some of the islands on our way to Krabi and then finish up in Krabi before flying out. We live in a beach community in California and know that there are little pockets that are better than others or have a culture that is better than another, so that's what we are trying to figure out.
We like being in an area that is lively but quiet...I don't need to see a college girl puking and then walking into the next bar, but I don't want to hear crickets either. We like live music, good drinks and food, and places that are fun and exciting, not wild and dangerous. I know...can I be anymore vague?!
How long should we stay on Phuket? Is Krabi worth the trip? Are any of the islands better than the others? In Phuket, is Kata the right place to stay, or should we be in Patong? Or somewhere else?
We are easy going. Like good food, good drinks, good people watching. We want to make it as memorable, but also want the ability to just sit and relax if that's what the day brings.
Anything will help.
Thanks so much!
